Student Protection Process

Student protection and wellbeing are paramount at Mt Maria College. Our commitment to the protection of students is based in our belief that each person is made in the image of God, and our ethos is to provide a safe and supportive environment for all. All students have the right to expect that the school will always act to protect them from any kind of harm.

Mt Maria College and Brisbane Catholic Education makes every effort to ensure that all Student Protection legislative requirements are adhered to. This includes meeting the accreditation requirements of the Non-State School Accreditation Board, which has approved the Student Protection processes to be used in schools.

Student Protection staff within the Brisbane Catholic Office have a role in assisting schools to discharge their Student Protection responsibilities.  Two Student Protection Officers with a background in social work and human services assist schools and Brisbane Catholic Education Office personnel in the identification and management of cases of student harm. Student Protection services are available to students in our schools and their families.

Student Protection staff within the Brisbane Catholic Education Office also carry out an educative role in relation to staff Student Protection training and other Student Protection strategies.
